"The Gathering"

 for Mennonite/Anabaptist Survivors of Sexual Abuse

November 2, 2019


The reduced rate is for Mennonite/Anabaptist sex abuse survivors only, and their partners or support person(s).

By registering (below) you declare the following to be true: 

1. I am/was *Mennonite/Anabaptist (or am the spouse/partner/support person) who was sexually abused in the community. (For definition of 'sex abuse victim' for purposes of this event, go to  "The Gathering" page.)

2. I affirm that I did not molest or sexually assault any child (as an adult), or participate in any non-consensual sexual activity (sexual assault) against another adult. I affirm that I never raped anyone, even as a teen.

3. I have taken full ownership -- apologized without excuse, and faced consequences,  for any molestation and/or other sexual indiscretions or sexual assaults in my youth, whether against a minor or a peer.

Note: Sexual contact cannot be consensual when it is a teen with a child; this is sexual assault. It also cannot legally be consensual  with several years age difference under age 15 or when other power imbalances exist. Laws vary from region to region.

If you are uncertain and have questions, please email: or message Trudy Metzger at:


To protect survivors of abuse, we will do our best to ensure that adult offenders and those who have raped in their teens, are not present.

Even if you have been sexually abused and went on to offend as an adult or raped someone in your teens, please do not attend. 

Be Aware:

Attendees have permission to identify any adult abusers who show up, as well as those who committed rape in their teens, and have security remove the individual from the premises. 


If you can affirm the aforementioned 3 items, you may register to attend.
